Is that morally ambiguous attitude changing as our population diversifies? There’s no denying that the stories of these men (and... [More]

Australian Rebellions

Are we a nation of rebels? When the British brought their people to this land they brought their laws too, but with mixed results. The social structure was penal not feudal, and the workers were more likely to be subversive than subservient. We’ve never had a successful revolution, the streets have never run red with blood, but time and again groups of people have resisted, rioted, and rebelled, denying the system its power over them, and doing their best to change their world.

With a colony started by convicts what can you expect but that Australia should have a colourful history of crime? From the forgers and blackmailers who became our earliest writers and architects, to con artists who used the ocean as a barrier to detection, to the thefts and assaults of the goldfields, and on to false identities, swindles, hoaxes, and robberies, the story of Australia is a story of rogues and scoundrels. Yes, there are heroic coppers, but there are plenty of badge... [More]

Great Australian Love Stories

What makes for true love in the lives people have really lived? When people talk of the great lovers of the world they rarely mention Australians – that image of the long, lean, laconic man of few words doesn’t quite match the roses and chocolates of Valentine’s Day advertising or the life and death theatricality of old Hollywood. But this land has known many couples who were greater together than they could have been apart, who formed a partnership of mind and body and heart that... [More]
